Over the past 30 years, the world of dentistry and orthodontics has seen some serious developments. Here we take a look at a few examples.

Invisalign technology is an orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth using a series of clear removable aligners. Invisalign uses gentle force to guide your teeth into a desired position, all whilst offering a discreet design – your friends need;t know you’re having orthodontic treatment as the aligners are clear.

 

The benefits of Invisalign:

  • Discreet as they are clear.
  • Removable so you can carry on eating the foods you love during your treatment period.
  • Comfortable – Invisalign is bracket and arch wire free, so you don’t need to worry about any scratches. It’s also a lot safer to play sports.
  • Easier to maintain good oral and dental hygiene – as the aligners are removable, it’s much easier to clean and floss your teeth – brackets and archwires can make this difficult with traditional fixed brace designs.

Here at Fresh we offer 2 types of Invisalign treatment, Invisalign and Invisalign express – you can read more about these here.

 

Digital impressions

Many people used to dread having impressions of their teeth taken because of the setting agent being so uncomfortable and inducing a gag reflex. However, gone are these days as impressions can be taken digitally – these are then placed onto a computer where your dentist is able to show you a complex digital image of your teeth.

 

CEREC technology

CEREC allows you to have porcelain hand-crafted crowns in a single appointment – walk into the practice with a damaged, cracked, or discoloured tooth and leave with a brand new replacement. Here at Fresh we are one of the only practices to offer CEREC technology in the Maidstone area. The treatment is completely bespoke, so your new crowns will be 100% suited to you in shade and shape, in keeping with your existing teeth.
